Skull Crushers

March 29, 2010 at 12:01 am 1 comment

This exercise may not crush your skull but it will definitely tone those triceps to take care of that extra tissue hanging around on the back of your arms. This exercise when done correctly will add beautiful shape to our triceps.

Here is how:

Step 1: Lie on a flat bench and take a light bar bell overhead with your arms extended. Your palms should be facing the roof.

Step 2: Shift the weight backwards so if you were to drop it, it would land on the floor behind your head and not on your head (skull crusher).

Step 3: Your triceps / elbows should be pointing the same direction of your legs and feet. In this fixed position slowly lower your hands and barbell down towards the ground until you get a deep stretch in the back of your arm.

Step 4: Slow press the weight back up towards the ceiling squeezing your triceps.

Repeat 8-10 reps for 3 sets!

Warning! Always start with a light weight that is easily manageable until you have mastered the form!

    Thank God for this exercise!! Now I don’t have to buy that ‘shaker thing’ I see them advertising on TV! I can tone my arms and it won’t cost me an arm and a leg!
